Türkiye and Syria Earthquake Response

On 6 February 2023 at 4.17am local time, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck South-eastern Türkiye (formerly known as Turkey) and Northern Syria. Less than 12 hours later, a second 7.6 magnitude tremor struck the same region. This is one of the strongest earthquakes to hit Türkiye in 100 years.


Death toll has risen to over 50,000 and more than 7 million children affected by this earthquake.


Our hearts break for those in Türkiye and Syria who have been affected by this emergency. Cold and sub-zero temperatures are of immediate concern, so providing lifesaving non-food items and heat supplies will be a priority.


World Vision is already on the ground and is working rapidly to provide assistance and support to children and families in need. This includes: 



Rapid Assistance provided by World Vision by 14 February

17,000 litres of fuel to medical facilities and search-and-rescue teams in Syria

Ukraine Crisis Response

As the conflict in Ukraine rages, World Vision is mobilising in the region to provide emergency supplies and assistance for children and families who are fleeing violence. Your contribution will help meet the needs of people fleeing the violent conflict in Ukraine. This includes emergency assistance packages, as well as psychosocial and educational support for children and families, including child-friendly spaces. If sufficient funding has been raised for this appeal, your donation will be channelled to the next most urgent response.

COVID-19 Appeal
COVID-19 does not discriminate, and its impacts will weigh heavily on those already living in poverty. In response, World Vision seeks to continue our efforts to protect vulnerable children, families and communities from COVID-19’s impacts. We constantly review our plans to ensure that the most affected are not forgotten.
